|Abstract:||A 59-year-old Chinese man presented with no light perception in the left eye 1 day following functional endoscopic sinus surgery. The patient underwent endoscopic optic nerve decompression with topical and systemic application of nerve growth factor and steroids after a failed trial of high-dose intravenous corticosteroids. Visual acuity improved to 20/25 at 3 weeks and remained stable at 9 months. Reports of full visual recovery are exceedingly rare following this functional endoscopic sinus surgery complication.|
